Little Stalk of Horrors...Brussel Sprout Stalks and An Easy Recipe

Posted by Picasa


Just having a little fun with The Great Hallow Tweet and some vegetables. I saw the theatrical version of Little Shop of Horrors in the late 80's in London on a high school class trip. I always loved Audrey 2 saying "Feed Me". I think Brussel Sprouts are unappreciated. Don't let the scary stalk scare you. Nicely browned almost crispy sprouts like these rock. I find the traditional boiling method turns them bitter, and that's why so many hate them.Soon your loved ones will be saying Feed Me if you cook them up this way. It may start out looking like a trick, but it makes a nice treat.

Pan Fried Brussel Sprouts

Wash and halve Brussel Sprouts. Take a tablespoons of vegetable or olive . Add Brussel Sprouts flat side down to pan. Heat on Medium to high heat for a few minutes. Don't turn them until after a few minutes to make sure they are brown and crispy. Turn and let them cook a bit more. Add about 1/4 cup of water, cover and let them cook and soften. Remove lid and let cook until water is evaporated. Season with sea salt and ground black pepper to taste.

Okay so I am one of those people who don't care for BS, but that is because they have always been boiled, and are just to much like cabbage. It is however a local food, and I am willing to try anything once ;)

Brussel sprouts are one of the few veggies I cannot abide. Even tried making them into a cake and couldn't conquer my dislike.
I am always willing to be converted though.......
